Paving the Way for Indigenous Scholars

The PathMaker Program definitely had a significant impact on my career path. It was what opened the door to the research world and provided me with the support I needed even after completing the program. I learned that even though my internship ended, the relationships and contacts I gained in the program did not. PathMaker has helped me in every step of my career, and I will be forever grateful.

Mensaje de Kolawole Okuyemi

Una de las cosas más gratificantes de estar en la medicina académica es la cultura de la tutoría y el entrenamiento que conlleva. Cuando estaba empezando mi carrera, tuve el beneficio de los asesores de la facultad que me ayudaron a asegurarme de que tenía el mejor entrenamiento para permitirme tener éxito. Y ahora, tengo el privilegio de asesorar a los profesores novatos que comienzan sus propias carreras.

Message from Kolawole Okuyemi

One of the most gratifying things about being in academic medicine is the culture of mentorship and training it engenders. When I was beginning my career, I had the benefit of faculty advisors who helped ensure I had the best training to allow me to succeed. And now, I have the privilege of mentoring junior faculty starting their own careers.

Chasing—and Catching—His Dreams

To say that the PathMaker Program made an impact on my life would be a huge understatement. I learned so much from my PathMaker experience, I honestly could write a book about it. Because of the skills I learned, the connections I made, and the amazing mentorship I received, the program instilled in me a drive to continue to chase my dreams.
